Summer in the Country Blanket

I joined a KAL (Knit Along) headed up by one of my favorite knitting pattern designers...Firefly . We are knitting a mystery pattern which is turning out to be so pretty. There are four large cables with bobble detailing, with sections of diamond laticework between the cables. I'm using 2 cones of Peaches and Cream 930 100% cotton yarn that I had in my stash. The color is baby blue. It is going to be such a soft blanket, the perfect weight for summer evenings.

Since I made it in my sister's favorite color, I think it is going to be hard to keep from gifting her with the blanket when it is finished. I might get to make two of them : )

It will be fun to see what the next set of directions add to the design.


  1. I can't wait to see more progress and more pictures! ;-)

  2. P.S. I've been peeking at your directions and I know that I could not do near as well as you are!
